DL gen10 - conrep error

Hi,

I'm in the middle of testing the current scripting tools on a new DL360 Gen10.

I'm running CentOS7 and installed the following rpms:
hp-health-10.80-1855.21.rhel7.x86_64.rpm
hponcfg-5.3.0-0.x86_64.rpm
hp-scripting-tools-11.20-2.rhel7.x86_64.rpm
ssacli-3.30-14.0.x86_64.rpm
ssaducli-3.30-14.0.x86_64.rpm
storcli-1.24.09-1.noarch.rpm

I'm trying to capture the BIOS settings with conrep -s -f uefi.cfg

But I get the following error:

ERROR: Unable to open CHIF channel for Option Rom operations: 0000000c: All channels are currently in use for the requested priority.

Does anyone know what this is about?
Couldn't find anything with google.
The tools always worked fine on Gen9 servers

full error output:

Re: DL gen10 - conrep error

I also get an error running hponcfg:

ERROR: CpqCiCreateFunc() 0 time failed.
Driver Error Code:(1,1h).
Driver Error Message: CPQCIDRV driver is not loaded.

ERROR: CpqCiCreateFunc() 1 time failed.
Driver Error Code:(1,1h).
Driver Error Message: CPQCIDRV driver is not loaded.
ERROR: A general system error occurred while detecting Management Processor.

HP Lights-Out Online Configuration utility

So my guess is I don't have the latest CHIF driver hpilo in my kernel.
I couldn't find anything in the SPP repo.

Where can I get the latest driver for RHEL7?

Re: DL gen10 - conrep error

iLO5 requires a new CHIF driver which is in the kernel, refer to the solution in this  thread https://community.hpe.com/t5/ProLiant-Servers-ML-DL-SL/iLO5-issues-on-Centos-7/td-p/6990073

Also hp-health is not supported on Gen10, use amsd as all the health information is now provided by iLO
